Hurrah for the Weekend

Hi Nomad Friends.  Another week over.  Have you got an action packed weekend planned??  I am really hoping to get out in the garden but they are forecasting cold and wet, wet, wet.  A bit like today.  Big sigh.  Bunnies and chickens really don't like this weather.  Little bunnies sit and gaze wistfully from the hutch.  It's such a drag having to dry all that fur.  Again.  Must get a picture for you.  They are just so cute.

I was looking to join the challenge over at BasicGrey Challenges where they are looking for a masculine theme.  Always a challenge.   I also had my eye on a couple of sites with a CAS theme so I have parred down my man card to the bare essentials, in this case barbeque......

I stamped this happy little BBQ guy from Panduro's Pojkar set on Basis Grey Curio Cabriole cur-3035.  I used the plainer side of this paper but it's got some lovely highlights.  Then I cut him out and mounted him on a base card which has fibers in it.  No name but it gives a nice mottled effect.  Probably recycled clothes again.  ROTFL.  The sentiment is a Crafty Individuals stamp 'Dream a Little Dream'.  When I grow up I want to be........

Hope you have a chance to BBQ this weekend.  Ours would have more chance as a boat for the rabbits.  Laugh.  Thanks for dropping by.  Your comments are little rays of sunshine on a grey day. 


  1. He looks rather wistful but if the weather is bad where you are then it is not surprising. I love that Kraft base card and use it a lot. Really hope you do not need a boat for your bunnies! Hugs, Anne x

  2. Great card, Gail, appropriately masculine, as, at last in the U.S., the BBQ is the man's kitchen! Love the look on that little guy's face!
